best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.
i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.
this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY
they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires
yeah but they’re quieter that way
A man tried to talk to a woman inside a Queens building lobby, then slashed her neck when she ignored him, according to police, who are now looking for the suspect.
The man, believed to be about 20 years old, approached the 26-year-old victim in the lobby of a Jamaica building after 5 a.m. on Oct. 1, police said.
He tried talking to the woman and when she turned away, he grabbed her from behind and used some sort of cutting instrument to slash her neck, according to police.
The victim was taken to the hospital, where she was listed in critical but stable condition. An aquaintance of the victim told NBC 4 New York that she is recovering, but that she suffered damage to her vocal chords.
"Just ignore them"
It is literally life threatening to be a woman
Being a woman is so fucking hard yall dont understand.
I hate children
reblogging for that gif tho >
That gif. So relatable.
Kids are awesome though! Even if they piss you off, they make a mess, they break things. At the end of the day when they look up at you an say I love you mommy. It’s the best feeling in the world!!
my older cousin once took this massive course in childcare and then we realised after that she didn’t even like children so she had to quit.
you know what people don’t talk about
How you see yourself vs. How the world see you.
